Mindful Meditation: Sat Mar 16, 9:15 am
Many associate meditation with Eastern religions, but did you know that meditation also has long history of being an essential part of Judaism? In the Talmud our sages are described as meditating for an hour before and after services.
Shabbat is a time for connecting to oneself by slowing down and centering oneself. During these 30 minute time slots, from 9:15-9:45 am, Rabbi Josh or Rabbi Daria offers gentle guidance on this powerful practice of stilling the mind so that we can engage with the world more as the “human beings” (vs “human doings”) that we are. We may do a “body scan,” open to the wisdom of a small piece of our tradition, and make space for what is inside in different ways.
Come give it a try and join us for a 30-minute guided meditation before Shabbat morning services. If you are interested in the meditation, but don’t want to, or aren’t able to stay for the 10 am service, no worries! Coming just for meditation from 9:15-9:45 is fine. We look forward to quieting our minds with you.
